Home Flooding - Carol Stream 60128
Floods can collect anywhere in your property. However, it is a most difficult issue to deal with when it gathers in a person's basement.
Basements hold anything from tools, old home furniture and belongings, and even paint and other chemical-based substances. Each one of these can mix in the flood water, forming more unsafe substances. This is why it is always essential for us to go in to floodwater using the proper gear. Water-proof and impenetrable gloves and footwear are of utmost importance. Long sleeved clothes and pants will also be a must. Also, when going into a flooded cellar, because of the presence of electric wires and outlets, we always turn off the power supply inside the whole structure to avoid electrocution.
In draining floodwater, we'll make sure that the pump you are using runs on a rechargeable source of energy, or from a power supply outside the property or structure you are in. Perma-Seal will be certain to drain the water gradually, about a foot every eight to twelve hours to allow the walls and other fixtures to dry up and regain their sturdiness.
